It’s not often that we open our bookmarks to the world, but since the summer heat is here we thought we’d cut you guys a break and give you some of our favorite links so you can spend some time exploring the resources that help us to manage our business…
Jott is a tool that transcribes your voice messages. You can use it to develop your text for your web site. Just remember it’s called “Jott” not “Notebook”, and your messages are limited to 1 minute in length!
Paypal is an online payment facility. If you haven’t signed up a BUSINESS account for Paypal – you should. It’s 2008, and just about everybody is familiar with PayPal payments. If the big companies are starting to use it, it’s about time you do too…

From the desktop of Willie Crawford, this is a tool that allows you to distribute your audio content. You don’t need to ship or duplicate. They do it all for you!
Develop your own presentations – complete with audio and video, and you can even integrate your own PowerPoint presentations. It’s not cheap, but its the best product on the market for doing online presentations and developing your own video-based products and instruction guides. To save on this one, those with children can order from www.academicsuperstore.com
No need to purchase upgrades for Adobe’s PDF program any more. Now you can simply upload your file to the PDFOnline system, and it’ll email you back with your PDF file.
Gone are the days of HTML pages. Step into Web 2.0 with Wordpress. Our BMG Team can help you develop a quality web site fast, and on the cheap – plus get you ranked in the search engines super fast. It’s a free program that does way more than any free program should, and well worth your time to learn it. You can also sign up a free account at their main site. (By the way, the entire Web Business Ownership site is done with Wordpress, so don’t knock it!)
Start your own membership web site or eLearning portal. WBO can provide the hosting, and you provide the content. Moodle is a goldmine for developing a closed-content environment. The program is free, and while it will take you a few days to get oriented with the features, it’s well worth more than the free offer it proposes. Lots of plugins, designs and its easily customizable.
Stop paying Network Solutions $35 for domains. They only cost $6.99 at GoDaddy with the WBO coupon code. Use WBO1 at checkout to save significantly, and take advantage of the upgrades over there as well. Use code WBO2 to save 10% off your total order. (Thanks GoDaddy!)
If you already have traffic coming to your site, Google Adsense is a great opportunity. However, for those of you with significant traffic, you’ll want to capitalize on those visits with a higher paying PPC (pay per click) campaign. Try Adbrite or Advertising.com
Make a few dollars by uploading your content to the FreeIQ web site. Others promote and download your material and you get cash! If you don’t have your own, sign up anyway to promote other people’s stuff and get paid for it…
Learn lots, and make lots of money!
